% of supplements have labels that claim to treat a disease, and that's illegal. for example, the government says this label for a product containing vitamins and a compound called dim-complex is legal because it claims to boost the immune system and support overall health, but it does not say it treats a specific disease. this label for a product containing algae and an herb is illegal because it claims to treat diseases including herpes and the flu. >> this raise report raises questions about the extent to which these claims are truthful and not misleading. the fda doesn't have the ability to look at the substantiation behind the claims, so there's no way for consumers to know if the claims are truthful. >> reporter: federal law classifies them as food, not drugs. products are required to be safe, but the fda only monitors them after they're on the market. when it comes to proof, supplement makers are only required to say research has been done. they are not required to show it to the fda. the natural products association issued a statement saying "this small sample of supplements shouldn't sme
